In this gold tooling workshop Jamie Kamph will provide step-by-step instructions in the process of gold tooling and review principles of blind tooling and designing for gold work.  If time permits, she will demonstrate some techniques for repairing and restoring old gold tooling.

Participants should bring
4″ x 6″ sections of book board, covered in leather appropriate for tooling (goatskin is easier to work than calf—instructions to follow) and gold tooling implements, if you have them. We will provide gold in both book and ribbon form, finishing stoves, Fixor, and a selection of tools.

Jamie Kamph is a bookbinder/conservator who lives and works at her farm in Lambertville, NJ.  Her design bindings are in major public and private collections.  She has taught bookbinding workshops at Princeton University, University of Texas at Austin, Mt. Holyoke College, Anderson Ranch, and SMU.  She has published A Collector’s Guide to Bookbinding  and is working on another book, Tricks of the Trade
